Antibiotics have since been our most powerful weapons against bacterial infections: The average life expectancy significantly increased and previously risky surgeries became standard medical interventions that revolutionized medicine. Nowadays resistance development casts its shadow on the once shiny drugs that saved millions of lives. Today more than 90% of pathogenic Staphylococcus aureus are resistant against penicillin. The full depth of the problem has long been obscured by the seemingly unlimited number of antibiotics. However, in the last years the number of new antibiotics has drastically decreased while the development and spread of resistances has dramatically increased.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Böttcher, Thomas</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:issued>2014</dcterms:issued> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2015-03-20T13:12:43Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:title>Antibiotic Resistance : Facing the Challenges of Bacterial Infections</dcterms:title> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
